Located along a quiet road just off the centre of Bowness-On-Windermere, Greenrigg presents an exciting opportunity to acquire a superb contemporary detached home in the heart of the Lake District National Park, with stunning panoramic views over Lake Windermere. Originally, this prime residence was built by the renowned Pattinsons builders who are responsible for some of the finest homes in the National Park. Acquired by the present owners who subsequently commissioned the property to be rebuilt, integrating the traditional Lakeland home aesthetics with striking architectural features such as curved wall detailing and the bespoke curved full length patio doors and windows that perfectly capture the Lake view. It now stands as a grand four bed family home, designed to offer an easy flow of social living spaces and generously proportioned bedrooms, each with an ensuite. The main open plan living space is set in front of the majority of the feature curved windows that enfold the rear of the property. It houses a stunning solid oak kitchen with a large dining and living area. At the forefront of this project is the enviable view over Lake Windermere, therefor much attention was paid to ensure that the view could be enjoyed from the majority of the rooms. The slate terrace at the rear offers a large alfresco entertaining space that looks out over the manicured lawn with the stunning lake backdrop. To the front of the property, the private gated entrance opens out onto the large tarmac driveway which also provides access to the integral double garage.
Set along the shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness On Windermere is one of the Lake Districts most popular towns and there you are spoilt for choice when it comes to independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. It is the perfect access point for those looking to make the most of the great outdoors, offering access to the Lake with a range of watersports and sailing club. Families will be delighted with local schooling and there is certainly something for all ages. Easy access can be found to Windermere where there is the well connected train station and the A591 leading to the M6.
From the front, the entrance door opens into a spacious and welcoming entrance hall. From the offset you can see the quality of this renovation, with beautiful attributes that are often overlooked such as the oak windowsills. This home has also been designed to the exact specification and needs of a modern family and thus the entrance hall provides direct access into the large utility and boot room that offers a range of fitted storage for coats and shoes. This is the ideal set up especially when living in a location abundant with some of the UKs finest walks and outdoor activities. From the inner hall there is access to a useful understairs cupboard and tastefully finished WC.
The heart of this sociable family home is certainly the open plan living space that is set in front of the bespoke hardwood full length windows that look out over the garden to the Lake Windermere. A view that never gets old and is ever changing throughout the seasons, the large glass panels open up to allow an easy flow out onto the terrace, perfect for entertaining even in large numbers. The Burlington slate tiled floors of the kitchen extend to the outside terrace and enjoy the benefit of internal underfloor heating. The handcrafted solid oak kitchen is the perfect wingman to any party, offering ample storage space and a large uniquely shaped central island. The units are all finished with solid granite worktops and encompass the Brittania Rangemaster cooker with gas hob and grill. Further appliances include an integrated microwave, warming drawer, dishwasher and Liebherr fridge, freezer and wine cooler. The central island doubles as a breakfast bar but for a more formal dining experience, steps lead down to a large dining area finished with rich oak floors. From here a hidden door leads into a temperature controlled wine store. For living space, the snug is centred around a warming contemporary log burning stove and there is also space for seating in front of the full length windows, the perfect front row seat to the Lake view, no matter the weather.
The unique curvature of the rear aspect continues into the living room. This is again a sizeable living space that perfectly captures the view over the rear. There is an integrated surround sound within here along with space for a large integrated TV for the ultimate cinematic experience. There is another built in wood burning stove in here, ideal for creating a cosy atmosphere in the evenings. The mix of Burlington slate and solid oak floors can again be seen in this room, a lovely finish to the space.

Access can be found from here into the integral double garage. This is a fantastic space for those looking for a workshop or could even be converted into a home office if required.
The bright galleried landing of the first floor looks out of the large gallery window to the rooftops of Bowness. To this level there are three spacious double bedrooms, each offering a view of Lake Windermere and quality ensuite shower rooms. The Principal bedroom is a stunning space with French doors opening out onto the curved balcony at the rear of the property, a private haven to enjoy a morning coffee or glass of wine at the end of a busy day whilst watching the sailing boats on the lake. The suite boasts his and hers walk in wardrobes and a show stopping, large ensuite. Finished with polished slate tiles to the floor and walls, the slate extends up at the centre of the room to surround the large Villeroy & Boch duo bath.

One of the bedrooms also provides access on the balcony and each offer space for a recreational area that will be much appreciated by the children of the family looking for a little more privacy.
Stairs lead up to reveal the fantastic second floor bedroom that can be closed off completely by a unique sliding overhead door. The attic offers two sides that at present affords a large double bedroom and reception space that is ideal for teenagers. If a fifth bedroom is required, it has been designed to afford space to split the two sides thus creating two bedrooms that would share use of the current ensuite shower. The large velux windows flood the space with natural light and afford a view of the lake. There is ample storage space available in here too.
Approach via private wrought iron gates which open on to the large tarmac drive to the front of the property which also provides access to the two doors of the integral double garage.

The slate finished terrace offers ample space for both alfresco dining furniture and recreational furniture to create the perfect outdoor living and entertaining space. The large glass windows and doors are set under a covered area creating a shady retreat to those beautiful sunny days. A gentle trickling water feature feeds a unique rectangular pond that runs the length of the terrace and steps lead down to the manicured lawn that is bounded by colourful shrubbery borders. The tall hedges create a private and secure haven but most important of all is the stunning panoramic view over Lake Windermere which will surely capture the attention of all that visit.
